	  This is the processor type of your CPU. This information is used for
	  optimizing purposes. In order to compile a kernel that can run on
	  all x86 CPU types (albeit not optimally fast), you can specify
	  "386" here.

	  The kernel will not necessarily run on earlier architectures than
	  the one you have chosen, e.g. a Pentium optimized kernel will run on
	  a PPro, but not necessarily on a i486.

	  Here are the settings recommended for greatest speed:
	  - "386" for the AMD/Cyrix/Intel 386DX/DXL/SL/SLC/SX, Cyrix/TI

	  This adds a ptrace interface to the hardware's branch trace store.

	  Debuggers may use it to collect an execution trace of the debugged
	  application in order to answer the question 'how did I get here?'.
	  Debuggers may trace user mode as well as kernel mode.

	  Say Y unless there is no application development on this machine
	  and you want to save a small amount of code size.
